Synopsis: Heat, Volume #3 brings you more simmering short fiction and spicy graphic arts in this latest installment of Sofawolf Press's adults-only anthropomorphic magazine. Food and cooking are a recurring theme in several of the stories, comics and poetry in this issue. So pour yourself a nice stiff drink and cozy up with our magazine that proves variety is indeed the spice of life.
Our Family of Farm Products is an amusing tale by Kyell Gold of two brothers coming of age in a bizarre world where old-fashioned farming meets space-age technology. Just what would a milking robot look like? Jonas' illustrations provide the answer. You may never look at a glass of milk the same way again!
Shark is Leo Magna's second comic for Heat and our magazine's first story about women who like women. In a tale of predatory desire and enticement, it's not always a shark's teeth that you have to watch out for.
Spiced Foxes marks Sheela Ardrian's return to our pages with a poem about love in the kitchen, where improvisation is preferred and recipes need not be followed to the letter. Lurid provides illustrations to match the poem's light and playful tone.
Danang Heat is a dark, sweltering tale by Patrick "Bahumat" Rochefort about fantasy and deception in the steamy jungles of Vietnam, where enjoying another man's company is a risk some soldiers are willing to take. AlumaSquirrel's illustrations give the reader a peek at what goes on in the shadows.
Sonnet XVIII, William Shakespeare's poem about timeless beauty, gets a classy and classical interpretation by Leo Magna
Lapping the Competition, Adam Wan's first comic to appear in print, is a story about love, misunderstanding and reconciliation between two young men in college. Their housemates help smooth things over, but...hey! Watch the stove!
Missing rounds out this issue with a coming-of-age tale quite different from the first. Through a series of narrative sketches that move backwards and forwards in time, Scout McIntyger describes his own path to discovering who he really is. Eric "Bayson" Hunter's illustrations are sketches themselves, depicting a life that is a continual work in progress.
And, as is our tradition, we leave just enough room to sneak in a bit of naughty doggie refrigerator poetry.
